Sokołów, 1932.

"On November 26, the Association of Cultures League in Sokołów organized a lecture entitled "Husband and wife in the light of today's culture" delivered by Dow-Ber Małkin from Warsaw.

The main idea of the lecture was the social situation of women in the past and today. Old Jewish religious literature knows only one type of a woman as a seductress; only modern literature puts women on an equal level with men.

About 150 people attended the lecture."


A letter from Sokolow #2

A few days ago, I posted here a photo of a fragment of a letter written by Ch. (Chaim, as I called him) Łosicki and sent from Sokołów to Matla in Tel Aviv in 1935.

Today - thanks to Yosefa - we know more about the fate of this young man. His real name was Chaim Chanoch. His parents - Mendel and Golda. In 1936 he emigrated to Palestine, where he was a teacher. Has he met with Matla then? I do not know. But we know that, unfortunately, he died on January 22, 1937 (because of pneumonia or malaria). He was then 22 years old.

And only we know how beautiful letters he wrote!

Thank you Amir Earon for this picture.
